Trump intervenes on biofuels after Governor Reynolds phone call

After her phone call with President Trump Wednesday, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds says the President was listening.  

Reynolds wanted to remind the president that he campaigned in Iowa and said he'd support biofuels in Iowa.  Yet the U.S. Environmental Protection Commission was reviewing new proposed rules that would lower the amount of federally-mandated biofuels.

Gov. Reynolds says President Trump reiterated his support for ethanol to her, as did EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. 

Bloomberg News is reporting that the President went a step further after the call.  The publication's reporting that Trump told the EPA's Scott Pruitt to drop the two rules that Reynolds and the Iowa congressional delegation have been complaining about.

A spokesperson at the EPA is quoted by Bloomberg as saying the Pruitt already intended to drop the rules before the president's demand.
